Smitten by Damon E. Johnson

The scent of her skin is naturally sweet

and her beauty takes my breath away

I get so nervous every time we meet

that I hardly have much to say


Yet these feelings of mine are so hard to keep

that I wish the cat would let go of my tongue

I try to convince myself that it’s not that deep

but the truth is I’m already sprung


There’s no doubt she’s the one that I adore

and her sexy vibe is difficult to resist

indeed love is just another metaphor

because a more powerful meaning doesn’t exist


Guess I’m going to have to finally confront my fear

and walk right up and look her square in the face

be truthful and undoubtedly clear

and hope that the words fall into place


See, I never met anyone like her before

and I’m a little anxious, but somehow I’m coping

so afraid that she might close the door

and leave my nose wide open
